Alba Luz's story

Alba manages a store. She lives with her husband, who is in the armed forces, and their two children. With the earnings from her store, Alba is able to maintain the household expenses. Her business has been in existence for eight months and she has been able to stock it gradually over time. Her main advantage is that the level of competition is minimal.

Alba is requesting a loan so that she can buy more products to satisfy the needs of her customers. She will buy oil, sugar, flour, bread, rice, snack foods, and detergents to help improve her earnings.

Alba dreams of having a larger store, strengthening her business, and improving service to her customers.
